Ten Expected Qualities of an Educated Person
Human being is considered the best creation of God. But we have to possess some good qualities to become a really good human being. These qualities are a person’s precious resources which will never be exhausted and only give benefit in our daily life. There are many good qualities that one can possess. Here we will be discussing some of those qualities but not in order of importance. These qualities are more or less important and necessary in different stages of life. They are as follows:
Honesty is the human quality of communicating and acting truthfully related to the truth as a value. Superficially, honesty means simply stating facts and views as best one truly believes them to be. It includes both honesty to others, and to oneself and about one’s own motives and inner reality. It is the volition of the individual not to be displaced from the right way. Honesty has no other alternative.
Truthfulness means to speak the truth habitually. It is one of the greatest human virtues. In fact, it is the essence of all virtues, implying not only truthfulness in speech but also strength of mind, moral courage, honesty, and many other qualities.

Thus patriotism becomes a part of one’s own identity. To be more specific, the characteristics that ornament patriotism include self-devotion, boldness, simplicity, respect, responsibility, gratefulness, and unselfishness.
Perseverance is to continue to do what can never be done. It is the unique precondition to success in life. Perseverance helps us do what we otherwise would consider impossible to do. In the modern world there are competitions in education, economy, politics, science, and even friendship building. Therefore, whatever our goals are we can achieve them by being perseverant. It is obvious that perseverance is needed not only in the individual level, but also in social and national levels.
